Book Description

July 24 2012
A stunning thriller that predicted the National Security Agency scandal. "Brad Thor is as current as tomorrow’s headlines." —Dan Brown

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor returns with his most explosive thriller ever. Somewhere deep inside the United States government is a closely guarded list. Members of Congress never get to see it—only the President and a secret team of advisers. Once your name is on the list, it doesn’t come off . . . until you’re dead.


Someone
has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath’s name.


Somehow
Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has targeted him and why they want him out of the way.


Somewhere, someone, somehow
can put all the pieces together. The only question is, will Harvath get to that person before the United States suffers the most withering terrorist attack ever conceived?

An intense, page-turning novel that is action-packed and frighteningly real, Black List blurs the line between fiction and reality and once again reaffirms why Brad Thor "is arguably the best thriller writer of our time" (Suspense Magazine) and "America’s favorite author" (KTTX).

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?" -- John 19:10 (NKJV)

A black list has historically meant that someone was banished, or banned, from a country or activity. This novel would have been more appropriately titled "Hit List," which would have captured the premise more accurately. The government has a list of people who are to be assassinated.

Although there's supposed to be a little due process to be sure that mistakes aren't made, this list has been compromised so that names are added for reasons other than protecting the nation against traitors and spies.

Scot Harvath makes this list and finds himself being hunted by his own government. It's a terrifying prospect that even a patriot like Harvath can be at risk ... and have no easy way to remedy matters.

Because of the extreme danger that Harvath finds himself in, the book necessarily involves a long series of attempts to evade detection and remain alive. In that sense, it's more of a suspense story than an action thriller. So don't expect the same level of action that you are accustomed to in past books. Even so, the book does drag a bit in places. So you won't get the full adrenaline rush.

You will, instead, receive a lot of food for thought ... especially about the need to be sure that checks and balances are in place on those with virtually unlimited power.

Think about it!

Great research. It makes the plot seem plausible. Brad Thor kept me glued to the pages the way Ludlum used to.

By Robin

Thor can certainly catch the readers attention quickely, this had lots of action and I had a hard time putting it down and in doing so finished it too quickely. Keep the books coming Brad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too predictable Oct. 10 2012
By Jorge
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I was not able to stop reading this book during the first 200 pages. However, the ending of the book was too predictable. There were no surprises. The author did not give a twist. I imagined the ending when I was on page 150. I think it is very well written, but when I am reading a thriller I don't want it to bee too predictable.
